I’m having so much trouble with this exact same thing…I’ve read all the posts I can find on this subject, and I STILL can’t figure out how to go from knitting the 34th row to beginning the part where I start picking up stitches. I completely understand HOW to pick up stitches…that part makes sense to me…but I don’t know which corner to begin doing that or how exactly.

I know some of the posts say to choose a corner and start picking up stitches, but I don’t know HOW to start that, considering my working yarn is on my left needle. I’m at the point where I just finished knitting the 34th row…I have 34 stitches on my left needle and 0 stitches on my right needle…where do I go from here? I’m assuming I’m not supposed to break the yarn here and start picking up stitches on one of the other corners…

From what I can find, the twisted stitch referred to in the pattern is the same as knitting through the back loop, which sounds easy enough…but how do I start doing that?

Please help!! I would appreciate any and all suggestions on how to progress from here…thanks!
